Is the compressor running,if not you need a start device,call your part store,give them the model number and next time send it here also and they'll tell you what overload and relay you need for your machine,if the compreesor is starting check to listen if the fan is blowing in the frezzer?or check the back wall of the freezer,if there's frost or snow on the inside back wall you have a defrost problem,bad timer,thermostat or heater or there could be a board in this fridge but i need the model number,good luck

Freezer is working,but fridge is warm. Fan in back of fridge will not shut off.


If your fridge is not designed with an automatic de-icing function, then there may be an ice dam blocking the cold air from moving from the freezer to the fridge. I had a fridge once that would get blocked with ice even if the rest of the freezer was ice-free.

Unplug your unit (often shutting off the breaker is easier than digging behind the fridge for the plug).

Pull everything out of the freezer and put it in a box. Cover the box completely with blankets to insulate it so your food doesn't thaw and spoil. Prop open the freezer door and let any ice accumulation melt.

Once everything has thawed out, wipe up the water and plug the unit back in. You should be able to tell after 10 minutes or so whether the fridge is getting cooler or not.

Fridge is not cold and freezer is thawing all my frozen food , is compressor gone?


Check if fan in freezer is running as well as fan by the compressor and the compressor itself. Check for any frost buildup on evaporator cover in freezer.

The freezer and refrig are not cold everything thawed...


There could be a few things that may keep a fridge from cooling. I'll give some you the most basic ones.


Check temp dials (fridge and freezer) not set too warm.

Bad freezer fan motor.

Bad timer.

Burned, stuck or obstructed condenser cooling motor. (the one underneath fridge)

Dirty or obstructed condenser.

Bad fridge door seals.

Refrigerant leak.

Bad thermic switch

Compressor overheating or damaged.

Good Luck
